Kurzbeschreibung

1. April 2006
Imperial Intelligence couldn't find them, the Imperial Fleet couldn't catch them, and local defenses couldn't stop them. It seemed the planet-wrecking pirates were invincible. But they made a big mistake when they raided ex-commando leader Alicia DeVries' quiet home work, tortured and murdered her family, and then left her for dead. Alicia decided to turn "pirate" herself, and stole a cutting-edge AI ship from the Empire to start her vendetta. Her fellow veterans think she's gone crazy, the Imperial Fleet has shoot-on-sight orders. And of course the pirates want her dead, too. But Alicia DeVries has two allies nobody knows about, allies as implacable as she is: a self-aware computer, and a creature from the mists of Old Earth's most ancient legends. And this trio of furies won't rest until vengeance is served.

In Fury Born is a greatly expanded new version of David Weber's popular novel Path of the Fury, which has gone through six large printings in its original mass market edition. David Weber has added considerable new material, revealing the earlier life of Alicia DeVries before she embarked on her mission of vengeance, and illuminating the universe of the original story. The result is a novel with almost twice the wordage of the original, and a must-buy for all David Weber fans.

Synopsis

Imperial Intelligence couldn't find them, the Imperial Fleet couldn't catch them, and local defences couldn't stop them. It seemed the planet-wrecking pirates were invincible. But, they made a big mistake when they raided ex-commando leader Alicia DeVries' quiet home world, tortured and murdered her family, and then left her for dead. Alicia decided to turn "pirate" herself, and stole a cutting-edge AI ship from the Empire to start her vendetta. Her fellow veterans think she's gone crazy, the Imperial Fleet has shoot-on-sight orders. And, of course, the pirates want her dead, too. But, Alicia DeVries has two allies nobody knows about, allies as implacable as she is: a self-aware computer, and a creature from the mists of Old Earth's most ancient legends. And, this trio of furies won't rest until vengeance is served.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Die erweiterte Neuauflage von 'Path of the Fury' 27. November 2005
Von Janaki
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
ist ein großartiges Buch. Hauptperson ist Alicia DeVries, eine typische David-Weber-Heldin, die, hinsichtlich ihrer geschilderten Eigenschaften, in dieselbe Kategorie wie seine Serien-Heroine Honor Harrington fällt.
Wir lernen Alley, wie sie von ihren Freunden genannt wird, im Alter von 14 Jahren kennen - und begleiten sie durch die Stationen einer geradezu exemplarischen (wenn auch teilweise alptraumhaft verlaufenden) Militärkarriere - bis sie schließlich, aus Gründen der Staatsraison, von ihrem obersten Vorgesetzten verraten wird und sie den aktiven Dienst quittiert.
Ein paar Jahre danach treffen wir sie wieder - nachdem ihre ganze Familie umgebracht wurde - und diesesmal macht sie sich, in geradezu phantastisch zu nennender Begleitung, auf einen Rachefeldzug, der droht, ihr schlußendlich buchstäblich den Verstand zu rauben ...
Ich habe die elektronisch verfügbare Advanced Reader Copy, sprich, das unbearbeitete Manuskript dieses Romans, gelesen ... vielleicht sollte ich besser sagen, ich habe es verschlungen. Spannend von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite, war ich heilfroh, gerade Urlaub gehabt zu haben ... Ich bin mir nicht sicher, ob ich in der Lage gewesen wäre, das Buch (oder besser die Datei) für die Zeit auf Arbeit unbeachtet im Netz liegen zu lassen.
Für Fans von Ringo, McMaster-Bujold und, natürlich, David Weber selbst, ist dieses Buch ein "Must-Read" - auch wenn der Autor - zumindest für meinen Geschmack - teilweise ein wenig zu ... dick aufträgt - deshalb auch nur 4 Sterne. Aber dafür ist es halt Military-SF in Reinkultur.

5.0 von 5 Sternen First in a new series. 26. April 2006
Von Detra Fitch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The tale/series begins in the middle of the thirtieth century. Alicia Dierdre DeVries is only fourteen-years-old when the military took an interest in her. Very few teens pop the test filters. Even fewer complete schooling shortly thereafter. Her psych evaluations are already astronomical. Age fifteen finds her in college. Before most people graduate high school, Alicia has finished college and entered the Marine Corps. Camp Mackenzie, the most grueling training ground where Marines are almost taken apart and totally rebuilt, is considered "fun" for Alicia. Directly afterward, she asks to join the Recon Marines and actually gets it. The Recon Marines are considered, even by their fellows, as among the Corps' elite. Once in the Gyangtse System, Alicia's military career really begins...round page twenty-five.

Alicia is considered "larva" by her fellow Wasps until her first real combat duty. Everything hits the fan eventually and Alicia matures quickly, very quickly, under fire. Those watching her at age fourteen still are and Alicia finds herself recruited into the Imperial Cadre, just before her nineteenth birthday. The Cadre are the Emperor's personal sword, paladins, and champions. They are the elite of the elite of the elite. Everyone else has one synth-link to worry about. The Cadre each have three. Alicia must undergo lots of surgery to have it all implanted. She also has a pharmacope, where her body injects itself with needed meds, from the inside, whenever needed. Some of those meds are unique only to the Cadre. One of those drugs is a neurotoxin which would automatically kill her if the need arises. The chance of long term survival in the Cadre is small.

Here I must skip lots. Let us just say that author David Weber outdoes himself with the battles and brilliant tactical moves. No one "retires" from the Cadre. They are simply classified "inactive". They may be reactivated at any time during their life to serve the Emperor and the Empire. Alicia is inactive only a few years when her entire family is massacred by pirates. Almost dead, Alicia finds help from an impossible source. She is "reactivated", of course, but believed to be insane when she tells how she accomplished the impossible. None believe her, yet no one can figure out how Alicia keeps doing the impossible. So Alicia and her impossible source go after the pirates themselves. Problem is that the pirates are not what they seem to be. If Alicia manages to find out the truth, the Empire may very well collapse!

***** Fans of David Weber's Honor Harrington series will fall in love with this new series featuring Alicia DeVries! Other than words such as "Fleet", "Imperial", and the military hardware used in Honor's novels, nothing is the same. You will NOT see familiar characters. To my knowledge, they are not even mentioned. No treecats either. As I stated, this is an ENTIRELY new series. The enemies within this story are not always human either. The Rish are giant and lizard-like. No, more like a T-Rex but on a smaller scale. I found myself just as enthralled with the Rish as Alicia. Enough said on THAT subject. I repeat, this is nothing like Honor Harrington! I stress that often because as unusual as Honor is, even without her treecat, Nimitz, Alicia is even more. Yes, she moves up in rank quickly, but that is normal in war time. All I can say without ruining the numerous surprises and twists is that I found myself totally blown away with Alicia. If the author continues this state of high standards for the next novel in the series, I may not be able to choose which is better; Honor or Alicia. *****

5.0 von 5 Sternen This begs for a sequel! 28. März 2006
Von Phillip Nunemacher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
David Weber has done it again! If you never read the original story of Alicia DeVries in "Path of the Fury" then now you have a chance to read an expanded version. This book is divided into five novellas that provide much need background into the life of the heroine.

The first book covers her reasons for enlisting in the Imperial Marines. We get a glimpse of her family and her first exposure to combat as a member of the marines. In the second book, her recruitment into the Cadre, training, and a mission gone horribly wrong that destroys most of her Cadre company. As captain of the reconstituted Cadre company, the third book explains why she left the service and became a colonist with her family. The fourth book introduces Alicia's reason for turning to the Fury and her link to Tisiphone. Book five covers the added link to the third member of the triumvirate, Megaira. Human, Fury, and AI are now complete and ready for revenge. But, can you call a victory of revenge triumph?

The author has produced a very well thought out blend of Greek mythology, technical advancements, and tragedy into an exciting tale. I can only hope that the tantalizing clues at the end mean that a sequel will be written. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Read. 22. März 2006
Von Timothy E. Whitworth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
When I first read Path of the Fury some years ago I enjoyed it greatly, so when I heard Weber was doing another Fury story I was overjoyed,subsequently I was disapointed on finding out it wasn't a sequel but a rewrite.Now I've read it I can safely say it is so much more then *just* a rewrite it is a fleshing out of an already excellent story, the backstory is well realised and fits in seamlessly with the original plot. This story remains an excellent example of an old fashioned revenge drama. Unfortunately I found the terrorist subplots in the additions to be very typical of recent american media treatments and this did detract from them in my opinion. This is a book which all fans of David Weber's work will enjoy, drama, character development,300 million reasons to forgive someone and Weber's trademark exploding spaceships.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A new (and old) David Weber space opera 4. Mai 2006
Von Mike Garrison - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I never read the original novel, so I'll comment only on my impressions of the current revision. The executive summary is that it is a David Weber military space opera story, with pretty much all the positives and negatives that implies.

The plots are well executed, except for a glitch where the new material is grafted onto the original story. It is easy to spot -- the first half of the book is obviously a post-9/11 story about honor, sacrifice, duty, and terrorism. The second half of the book is entirely different, being a more traditional space opera story.

As usual with Weber's stuff, he writes exciting descriptions of military action broken up by detailed technical explanations of the limitations of the hardware he has invented for the story. Also as usual, he spends a great deal of time telling you why each situation is hopeless so that he can impress you when his heroes overcome it. If you are looking for anything other than superficial characterization, you are reading the wrong book.

Many of the staples of Weber space opera are included, such as a heroine who is genetically elite, medical augmentation to create super-soldiers, and a government consisting of a benign monarch who has to deal with craven and treasonous nobles and elected officials.

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the book is the question addressed towards the end: What is the difference between justice and vengeance? There is not a great deal of depth involved, unlike for instance something by Steven Brust or Lois Bujold. But even just asking the question opens up more interesting grey areas of morality than are usually addressed in Weber's novels. It does come at a slight cost to the plot, however, because the tension at the ending is almost entirely forced and the suspension of disbelief is severely strained.

As usual I think it could have used some more aggressive editing, but it's better than most of the late Honor Harrington novels in that regard -- probably because he's not trying to tell a much bigger story on top of the one that is happening to the characters.

All in all it is fun to read the first time, but probably not something most people will read over and over again looking for nuances. It's good (but not great) pulp fiction.

5.0 von 5 Sternen More Is Better 3. April 2006
Von Arthur W. Jordin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
More Is Better

In Fury Born (2006) is a greatly expanded version of the novel Path of the Fury (1992). The earlier novel has already been the subject of a prior review and, insofar as I can tell without the book in hand, the latter half of this work is basically unchanged from that work (with maybe a minor correction or two). This volume, however, adds 436 pages (more than doubling the length) which cover the life of Alicia DeVries from the age of fourteen to the day she resigns from the Imperial Cadre.

Alicia first came to the attention of the Cadre through the results of the standard exams taken in her fourteenth year. However, the Cadre was constitutionally restricted from minority enlistments and she was only added to the recruiting watchlist. After her graduation from the Emperor's New College and immediate enlistment in the Imperial Marines, the Cadre began actively manipulating her career.

Her first assignment after basic training was to the Recon battalion on Gyangtse, where she displayed conspicious awareness of both the military and the political environments. Her subsequent deployments continued to demonstrate her brilliance and competence, so she was rapidly promoted to staff sergeant. She was slated for a transfer to the Raiders when the Cadre offered her an alternative. Thereupon she became one of Brigadier Sir Arthur Keita's proteges.

Alicia only resigned from the Cadre after the Emperor betrayed her dead by making a deal to allow the traitor of Shallingsport to live. She settled on Mathison's World with her family for four years. Then the "pirates" raided her homestead, but missed Alicia because she was out hunting direcats. Her family was dead by the time she could return, but shortly thereafter all the raiders were also dead. Unfortunately, Alicia was dying as well, but everything changed when she made a deal with the remanents of the Fury Tisiphone (see my prior review).

With David Weber, more is better. The first half of this novel is just as engrossing as the latter half. It is a long read, but well worth it.

Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys military and naval action novels.

-Arthur W. Jordin
